Tellin’ It How It Is: Getting Real with inDIRECTV

Overthinking situations, overanalyzing and not speaking our truth can haunt us more than hearing our roommate’s night terrors. However, embracing the old adage, “honesty is the best policy” and telling people everything on our minds can lead to uncomfortable situations or hurt feelings. Some of us just can’t get comfortable trying to make ourselves more comfortable. Wouldn’t it be nice if we didn’t have to live with the regret of saying ‘yes’ to living in a loft (without walls) with a roommate who screams at night? Enter Big Brother alum, Brett Robinson, who was the perfect inspiration for our show inDIRECTV. 

Confronting Life, Head On

We had Brett come to the DIRECTV Studio to help subscribers confront a person in their life with a hard-hitting truth. All the die-hard Big Brother stans know and love Brett for his opinionated, loud, and arrogant (that’s what the internet said, not us) personality. Brett is ruthless yet unique with his comebacks. We loved seeing his fight with Rockstar play out when she lost her mind screaming, “how can you do this to me on my daughter’s birthday, I can’t – I can’t even with you!” Brett’s response was perfect “okay, then don’t.” He walks away unbothered.

Brett Robinson cool guy

Brett doesn’t hold back and he isn’t afraid to tell people exactly how he feels in the moment. There may be drama but at least we know where we stand with Brett.

We can learn a thing or two…or three from Brett.  

Get Like Brett

If you’re like Brett and find most people intolerable but need help telling them how it is then this is an episode that will speak directly to you. Brett helps a girl break up with her way-too-nice boyfriend, tells off a boss who undermines his employee and (our favorite) evicts a roommate who doesn’t pay rent. Check it out and send it to someone who really needs to be told how it is.
